    A RED Disaster!

    Sunday brunch for the four of us can only be described as a disaster. Staff was banging into each other, or just wandering around, having no idea what they were doing. We waited for 20 minutes for our cups of tea, served in one single cup, not even half-full. We returned it, and waited another 15 minutes to get another cup. I have never seen tea served that way. where are the metal containers, holding hot water and a tea bag, for at least 2-3 cups? Each cup was $3.75. Are they kidding? Shrimp and grits was watery and served only with a fork. Are they kidding? Donut holes were supposed to be served with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Vanilla ice cream was a hard brick of lemon sorbet, and the whipped cream was laced with bourbon, and the waitress had no idea that the whipped cream had alcohol in it, and the ice cream was not ice cream at all. The bill for brunch for four people was over $100. Gospel singers were so loud that I couldn't even hear and talk to my friend. It's the emperor's new clothes. Are they kidding?

    I was disapointed. The service was poor. Dlease don't order the red grits, they are, tasteless. Hard bread for catfish sandwich and just the most unappetizing apple pie I have ever eaten, and where was the cheddar cheese for the pie?

    After Finally Getting Service

    We were seated about 10 minutes before our actual reservation time of 7 PM......and we waited, waited and waited. This was so surprising especially since there were many waiter marching around, and even standing on the side lines. They seem to look up and around, instead of down and around. Finally we asked who was our waiter to a waitress and then it was "no one came over"? She said she would find the person, but would take the order to get things going- I guess it was she, because she stayed with us the rest of the evening. I must say things got better! The service was good and the food was excellent!

    Interesting atmophere

    Food was great, however two major problems. Firstly, the door in one of the bathrooms was stuck. I was scared I could not get out. Secondly, my waitress did not come by the table earlier to ask if we wanted dessert and the restaurant kitchen was closing. It was my brother's birthday.I will not see him in a while since I am going to Europe. It saddened me and my friend, and we asked if they would make an exception. I am never going back to this restaurant; it should please the customer.

    Best Brunch Ever

    I've been traveling around to brunch all over Manhattan, and am VERY happy a great spot has opened up in the neighborhood. We went 2/13/11, as a pre-Valentine's Day treat. We got seated right away, which was great, but if you're a larger group it's best to get there on the earlier side, as they don't take brunch reservations. Service was decent at best, our waitress while friendly, took too long to attend to us (another waiter had to stop by before she finally came over) and brought out our appetizer and entrees together. Apps: Cornbread w/ tomato jam and honey butter spreads. This was AMAZING! The cornbread was warm (and shaped like a slice of pound cake), and the tomato jam was out of this world! Entree: I had the shrimp w/ poached egg and red grits, which was satisfying and the grits were the perfect consistency. Flavored perfectly, I was very happy with my choice. My fiance got the burger, and he raved about it. He said it was the best burger he had ever had, and coming from a foodie, I don't take that lightly. I didn't try it because I don't do mayo. Had some of the fries, which were very good, but nothing spectacular. Dessert: Sweet potato donuts w/ cinnamon. Very yummy-- came w/ 2 dipping sauces; one icing type and another watery one that I didn't really use. I could've eaten at least 4 more of those little donut holes. SKIP: cocktails-- the mimosas, while very good, with the perfect orange juice/champagne ratio, were $12, and unless we were drinking freshly squeezed OJ w/ DOM, it was not worth $12. Overall, very nice decor--- the fact that Marcus walked around a few times made us feel as if people in the kitchen stepped it up. The waitstaff needs to get it together---or at least the waitress we had-- especially on a busy Sunday. Side note: we were seated next to the gospel trio, who reminded me of an SNL skit. They were fine, but a comical and over the top...especially since they were riffing to the styling of a Yamaha keyboard. I don't know where or when these other folks had their experiences, but ours was amazing, and I figured I share. I'm going back this Sunday for the nuggets and toast entree I was originally leaning toward! (I'm gonna skip the mimosas though ;-))

    Did I eat at the same restaurant?

    I am totally mystified by the number of bad reviews on menu pages. Maybe since the chef has such a reputation, people expect to be "wowed" and were not. Dined at Red Rooster this past Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it. The vibe is very unique, with a happening bar and warm dining room. The only drawback was the service. More specifically, the bar service. Drinks just took too long to get--including coffee. There seemed to be plenty of waitstaff, but they all seemed very disorganized. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, and helped us order some amazing dishes. The shrimp with grits appetizer, catfish special, cornbread, veggy main dish, side of collards, pumpkin donuts and black and white pie were standouts. The menu pricing is all over the place, but you can get in and out at a fair price. We had 2 appetizers, 4 entrees, 1 side, 1 order of cornbread, a bottle of wine, a beer, a martini and 3 desserts, and total with tax/tip was $62/person. I would call the cuisine southern with global influences. Hope the service improves with time.

    Great Service! Order Baked Mac & Greens!

    Family of 4, reservations for weekday lunch at noon. Many available tables. Excellent service from hostess, coat check, waiter, etc. Lemonade didn't taste homemade. Caution: iced tea is unsweetened. Atmosphere very nice, dim lights, shades of brown, soft music. Nice view of open kitchen in back and bar in the front. Crusty bread with olive oil was delicious. Baked mac and greens = perfection! Cheesy, gooey goodness. LIked by everyone at the table. Served with a salad. Blackened catfish with black eyed peas & greens was good. Diner wished there was a larger portion of peas and didn't like smell of a particular spice on fish. Steak & oxtail had nice flavor, meat was tender. Enjoyed our lunch, knew the prices going in so the bill was hardly a surprise. Worth a visit. I would go back for the mac & greens!
